Music Fan First

10/27/2013 – It’s been a little longer than I had anticipated, but thought I’d better take time to catch up while the opportunity presented itself.  All is well on the music front.  The cd is doing remarkably well.  Candy Coated Raindrops reached a new high on the national singles charts last week.  It finished the week at #74.  Still pinching myself.  I’m currently in talks with some key distributors for licensing deals.  I’m very excited about that.  I wish I could say more about it, but things are not finalized yet.  One deal, we’ve been working on for nearly two months now.  All the terms are set, we’re now just waiting on the final documents.  #exciting times.  

As I’m sure you could imagine, I’m a huge music fan.  As my boy Eric Roberson says, Music Fan 1st.  Whenever I get an opportunity, I go out and support my industry peers.  Of course it’s an opportunity for me to enjoy some great live music, but it also gives me a chance to observe and pick up ideas for my own show.  Now don’t get me wrong, my show is all me and totally unique, but sometimes I might pick up on something that could be useful to me down the road.  Last week, I had an opportunity to check out Raheem Devaughn in Atlanta.  Great show.  Very energetic!  Definitely feeling his new material.  Love Connection is catchy.  Check it out…

My Musical Director and I met last week to start ironing out details for my upcoming live shows.  We’re hoping to announce some dates for you real soon.  It’s going to be the true Will Preston experience…..always smooth, always sexy, and of course delivered with class.  I am, after all, a gentleman :)  All in all, it should be a lot of fun. …..I’ve got to run for now, but I’ll be back soon.  Continue to spread the word about the project.  With your help we’ll reach the top!  Thanks for all the emails and tweets, etc.  I love hearing from you guys.  Until next time…
